Goals

  • World Efficiency Solutions focuses on 5 business oriented goals related to the SDG* where there is significant opportunity to mainstream and scale existing efficiency solutions.

     

    Put your solutions or projects into a broader sustainability perspective in order to position your organisation as a leader of the new economy.  

     

  • 5 goals

    These goals are an opportunity to generate jobs and economic growth in low-carbon and resource-efficient industries; and create long-lasting economic and social value on a global, macroeconomic level.
  • Clean & Affordable Energy

    Transitioning the energy mix to clean and renewable energy while strengthening energy efficiency is an easy and essential solution for the low-carbon economy. Innovative technology, financing and partnerships are making renewable energy more competitive than ever before – and is creating jobs and facilitating energy independence.

    Solutions include : energy efficiency- New energy and renewables production - Heat recovery systems - Biomass exploitation - Storage - Efficient lighting - Monitoring and deleting systems,...
  • Sustainable Cities & Communities

    The majority of the world’s population, resource consumption and energy use is found in urban environments – making cities the key to global sustainability.
    Cities and communities, who are often first-responders to system-level challenges such as consumer waste, water scarcity, green mobility etc. – will be the crucial agents implementing solutions to sustainability challenges.

    Solutions include : resource-efficient urban planning – water, energy, soil, materials - Water efficiency - Energy efficiency - densification / compactness - Sustainable management of urban ecosystems - Efficient public lighting - Data management - Multimodal IT systems - Connected objects - Smart grids (transport, energy, water, telecoms & information) - Eco-building, eco-renovation and eco-exploitation of public buildings - Positive energy territories …
  • Green Infrastructure & Mobility

    Sustainable infrastructure enables sound economic development, job creation and promotes a more effective and efficient use of financial resources. Financial and economic benefits can result from reduced use of materials, improved pollution prevention, and reduced carbon emissions.
    Transforming the mobility sector is of particular importance, as transporting goods and people demands huge quantities of energy, resulting in significant levels of CO2 emissions.

    Solutions include : Eco-building, eco-renovation et eco-exploitation - Smart building (sensors, monitoring tools, control systems…) - Eco-materials - Green roofs and facades - Smart glazing - Electric, hybrid or hydrogen powered vehicles - Recharging infrastructure/terminals - Carpooling, car sharing services - Low-carbon public transport (rail, cable…) - Tolls for logistics optimisation (electric utility vehicles, rounds management, last mile management, geo-location systems),...
  • Responsible Consumption & Production

    The economic opportunity for net savings on material and energy costs is valued at hundreds of billions of euros annually in the EU alone. Through responsible consumption and production practices, companies can benefit create new profit pools, build resilience against resource shocks and improve competitive advantage – while supporting environmental objectives.

    Solutions include : Eco-design - Plant-derived materials (bio sourced) - Recycled materials - Biotechnologies - Efficient processes (energy, water and materials saving) - Sensors, software and energy management systems - Sensors, meters, on-line analysers for water management - Tools and devices for losses reduction - Materials reuse - Bio-monitoring and biological control - Micro-irrigation (drip), water needs modelling and monitoring - Surveillance tools (drones…) - Precise metering tools ...
  • Natural Resource Management

    The mismanagement of ocean resources alone has an economic impact of 190 billion euros per year. By optimising the interaction between natural environments and industries such as agriculture, shipping, waste management etc., can lead to substantial economic and environmental gains, manage risks associated with climate change and secure long-term sustainable economic growth.

    Solutions include: Actions, tools and services to preserve and develop biodiversity - Maintenance, restoration and remediation of ecosystems Integrated watershed and coastlines management - Adaptation to climate change and natural risks reduction - Eco-design of coastal and maritime facilities - Sustainable use of lands ...
